Create a Backyard Escape with These 8 She Shed Interior Design Ideas

Tuesday, December 14, 2021

The “she shed” is womankind’s answer to the “man cave”. Here are eight inspiring interior design ideas for she sheds — designs that are enhanced by using Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard and Trusscore SlatWall for the space’s interior walls and ceilings. 

Everyone understands the term “man cave.” It has long been part of pop culture and conversational use, referring to a place where males can indulge preferred interests amid a preferred aesthetic free from family intrusion. A space of his own. 

It was only logical (and fair, frankly), that a female equivalent would emerge. 

And so, we have the “she shed”. A place for womankind to find refuge from spouse, kids, and perhaps work and responsibilities, and in an environment that appeals to their own design sensibilities. The term “she shed” is thought to have debuted with the 2016 premiere of the U.S. reality TV series He Shed, She Shed. But the notion, or the idea, of a space dedicated for a woman’s individual creative pursuit has existed at least as far back as Virginia Woolf’s famous 1929 essay, A room of one’s own

Regardless of origin, today the she shed is firmly entrenched in the public mind and the construction trades as a concept, with creative designs tailored to specific pursuits and individual tastes – reading, writing, gardening, exercise, or self-care. In short, a quiet place, separate from a main dwelling, for contemplation, relaxation and, for some, work. 

Interior designs range from simple and minimalistic to chic and sophisticated. 

What to Consider When Selecting She Shed Interior Walls

The look, feel and function of a she shed will be driven in large part by the decision about the wall and ceiling product selected, whether wood, drywall or other material.
